How does Android choose which Wi-Fi network?

If my Samsung Galaxy S2 recognises multiple Wi-Fi networks, how does it choose which one? Is it whichever one it picks up first, or the one with the strongest signal?

Android will inform you it's found wifi networks but it won't connect until you tell it to. Then it's a matter of order in your 'remembered' list as to which one it picks first.
